Gopher Nuisance Concerns:

Gopher Removal:

  • APCS uses a burrow treatment to eliminate the problem of gophers.

General Information about Gophers:

They usually will give birth to one litter a year consisting of 3-6 babies. Birthing months are typically in the spring. Their diet consists of roots and vegetation. Gophers are active during the day and in the night.

Mice can contaminate food-preperation areas with their feces and can cause severe damage to structures.
